The Rodgers and Hart Story

Before writing musicals with Oscar Hammerstein II, composer Richard Rodgers collaborated with lyricist Lorenz Hart for nearly 25 years on hit shows like Pal Joey, Babes in Arms and On Your Toes, producing classic songs such as My Funny Valentine and The Lady is a Tramp.

Jonathan Pryce narrates a profile which features rare archive footage and more recent performances by Broadway singers to reflect the way the songs were first heard in the 1920s and 1930s.
